What is it

A peer to peer private anonymous and secure messenger that works over Tor. It's also free and open source software which gives users the freedom of changing it and redistributing it under the terms of the GNU General Public License v3.

This project was started in July 2020, by Sofian Mahmoud Benissa and Alton James Steele

How it works

Network and encryption

Anonymous Messenger utilizes Tor for it's anonymity network and data transport security using the onion v3 protocol and the ability to run onion services on any device and connect directly and anonymously without having to set up any servers, also it uses the signal protocol to encrypt all data before sending it over the Tor network directly to the intended receiver, which means we get two layers of end-to-end encryption without using any server or service.


Instead of using http Anonymous Messenger uses it's own transport protocol which is written for anonymity and simplicity. For example when we send a message we encrypt it using the Signal protocol then we establish an onionV3 encrypted connection and send the encrypted message over the already encrypted connection.


Anonymous Messenger encrypts data stored on the user's device with the user's password using SQLcipher for the database and encrypts all files with AES/GCM/NoPadding cipher.
